He’s Bold, Man Rushes Stage At Beyonce And Jay Z Concert Atlanta

(Atlanta, GA) – Jay Z and Beyonce always display some elaborate visuals during their concerts.  But one sight fans weren’t expecting was a drunk man running on stage.  He was stopped by the backup dancers, but you have to ask….how’d he get up there anyway?

The OTR II tour features a pretty involved set that allows them to interact with their fans in pretty much every area, especially on the floor.  A long runway is featured as well as steps that appear to lead down to the crowd which seems to be the route the stage buster took to get to the billionaire couple.

Reports claim he actually touched Jay Z before he was apprehended by backup dancers and security guards. The 26-year old is now being charged with battery and disorderly conduct. Jay Z and Beyonce were unharmed.

Walk-Off: Alabama Beats Georgia In OT For National Title

(Atlanta, GA) – To add another championship to the greatest dynasty college football has ever seen, Alabama turned to its quarterback of the future, and Tua Tagovailoa proved that his time is now.The freshman quarterback, who had played mostly mop-up duty this season, came off the bench to spark a comeback and threw a 41-yard touchdown to DeVonta Smith that gave No. 4 Alabama a 26-23 overtime victory against No. 3 Georgia on Monday night for the College Football Playoff national championship.

Tagovailoa entered the game at halftime, replacing a struggling Jalen Hurts, and threw three touchdown passes to give the Crimson Tide its fifth national championship since 2009 under coach Nick Saban.”He just stepped in and did his thing,” Hurts said. ”He’s built for stuff like this. I’m so happy for him.”
The Tide might have a quarterback controversy ahead, but first Alabama will celebrate another title.For the third straight season, Alabama played a classic CFP final.The Tide split two with Clemson, losing last season on a touchdown with a second left.What was Saban thinking as the winning pass soared this time?
”I could not believe it,” he said. ”There’s lots of highs and lows. Last year we lost on the last play of the game and this year we won on the last play of the game. These kids really responded the right way. We said last year, `Don’t waste the feeling.’ They sure didn’t, the way they played tonight.”
Smith streaked into the end zone and moments later confetti rained and even Saban seemed almost giddy after watching maybe the most improbable victory of his unmatched career.

Miami Takes Advantage Of Undisciplined Plays To Comeback From 17 And Beat The Falcons

(SL) – What the heck happened? The Atlanta Falcons have some tweaking to do after blowing a 17 pt lead and losing to the Dolphins.
Atlanta got off to a quick start with its usual performance from Devonta Freeman. His speed was hard to contain and he was able to burst through gaining yards and adding to easy field position as the Falcons dominated and shutdown Miami’s run game all together in the first half.
Matt Ryan even connected with Marvin Hall for a beautiful 40-yard Touchdown pass that pretty much made fans wonder where he’s been all this time. Answer: The practice squad and he was promoted a day earlier because of an injury to starting receiver Mohamed Sanu.

Miami was struggling and Jay Cutler (who put off retirement)  failed to connect any pass longer than 12 yards and was even picked off by Deion Jones late in the first half. The Falcons would return for the 3rd quarter up 17-0 and then somebody left the gate open.
It was as if they switched roles. Miami came out blazing with 15-plays that moved the ball 75 yards and then Cutler connected with Sills for the 11-yard TD.

Ryan would be haunted by interceptions once again. (He’s thrown 6 in the past 3 games) And undisciplined play would be costly.

The Falcons also botched a punt. The punter tried to picked it up and run but was tackled short of the first down. The Dolphins were set to move and capitalize on a 49-yard field goal which tied the game at 17.

Cody Parkey kicked a 39-yard field goal with 2:30 remaining and just like the Dolphins led 20-17.  Then…safety Reshad Jones intercepted Matt Ryan at the 6-yard line with 39 seconds left and that was all she wrote.

Jay Cutler was 19 of 32 for 151 yards while Matt Ryan finished 24 of 35 for 248 yards.
